Point of View: What Will the Technical and Professional Education Provider of the Future Need To Be Successful?

Collab Group has been working with PublicCo and our member colleges on a project that aims to conceptualise the key drivers for change in the Technical and Professional Education landscape. We have launched this publication detailing the findings of this research and this will coincide with a roundtable discussion event.

This publication is the second in a series of two. This first paper focuses on what the future landscape for TPE will look like, click here to view. The second – What Will the Technical and Professional Education Provider of the Future Need To Be Successful? – will focus on the organisational capabilities that TPE providers will need and how they will need to change.

Successfully reforming our system of technical and professional education (TPE) has become a critical national challenge. That system needs to play a central role in raising our economic productivity, enabling our citizens to move into skilled jobs with better pay, supporting investment in those parts of the country that have been left behind, and dealing with the impact of Brexit on the supply of skills.

Recent and planned policy reforms, such as the apprenticeship levy and the introduction of T levels, have the potential to add up to a transformation of the TPE system. But it is far from certain that this potential will be realised. For that to happen, central and local government, employers, education providers and other stakeholders need to work closely together to lead that transformation, with a shared vision and as part of a coherent strategy.

The purpose of this point-of-view is to help shape a vision for the future of TPE that is shared across providers, employers, government and others. We therefore view it as a contribution to a dialogue with our stakeholders, with whom we will be discussing it over the following weeks and months. It takes as its starting point the potential impact of three key sets of reforms of the TPE system and five key contexts.
